Enjoy the Ride

I just finished watching an old movie based off the fate of the main character, and in the movie, the main character’s life is practically determined by whether or not she catches a train. We see what happens when she does in fact catch the train, and when she misses it, but the point being, it was all about fate.

In life, things tend to happen to us and those around us at times when we least expect them. Most of these occurrences cannot be prevented so many of us like to call these things fate. Well, at least only the good occurrences. For example, you’ll hear people constantly say, “It was fate that brought us together.” Or, “It was fate that I was at this particular place at this time.” However, you never really hear people use the word fate when it comes to negative situations. But whether you like to believe that everything happens for a reason, or that something good comes along after every time something bad occurs, there is a bigger point to be made here.

Not everything in life can be planned, scheduled, pre-determined, arranged, or any other word with the same meaning. Things are going to happen to us and to those around us, and sometimes it will be good and other times it unfortunately won’t be. So where does that leave us, you may ask.

We cannot control everything that happens in this world, but we can make the best of what we have been given. Let life run its course, as it is going to, but in the process of doing so, live it to the fullest. Do everything you want, and achieve all that you wish to accomplish. Who knows where fate or life may take us tomorrow, so for today, you might at well enjoy the ride.
